Winter Wonderland 

Head down to Dows Lake Pavilion to pick up the prearranged skate rentals for your group, and spend a few hours skating on the worldís longest skating rink, the Rideau Canal.  (If youíve timed the itinerary around Winterlude in February, the massive snow sculptures on Dows Lake deserve extra viewing time.)  Warm up with a quick hot chocolate and Beavertail pastry sold by vendors at various spots along the Rideau Canal.  A unique-to-Ottawa experience!  
Travel to Old Chelsea, QC, just a short 10 minute drive north, for a nutritious lunch at Gerry & Isobelís Country Pleasures.  After lunch, use the prearranged ski rentals from Gerry & Isobelís to go cross-country skiing on one of many groomed trails in Gatineau Park.  An alternative is to head to Carman Trails Outdoor Centre for an afternoon of snow-shoeing in Gatineau Park, with the option of herbalist interpretation. After a day of fresh winter air, sleep will come easily for your clients!  Day two will be another active one with a chance to try dog-sledding; travel north 30 minutes to Wakefield, QC for a full day of winter adventure. Expeditions Radisson offers full day dog-sledding excursions, and provides everything that is needed, including the services of a musher, related equipment, a hot lunch and trail snacks.
